An expanding garden supply retailer in White River Junction is seeking approval to build a cannabis cultivation facility on Hartford Avenue to produce cannabis for the commercial retail market.
The Hartford Zoning Board of Adjustment will hold a public hearing Wednesday night for a proposal by White River Growpro, a garden supply business that specializes in products for growing cannabis. Growpro is looking to build a cannabis nursery and processing center at 788 Hartford Ave. to grow, dry, cure, and package cannabis for adult use.
Growpro owners Kendall Smith and Stephanie Waterman, in an application to the Zoning Board, stated that the cannabis grown at the facility would only be sold wholesale or to Vermont-licensed retail dispensaries.
The cultivation facility would be attached to a new retail store on Hartford Avenue, where Growpro plans to relocate its current business. However, the facility would be a separate operation from the retail store and would be accessible only to employees.
